The sticker thing is dumb as shit. You can get doubles lol.

 

I've completed 2 quests so far. Viewing activity feed, and completing a queue. Dunno what the third one is.

Review your preferences

I'm pretty sure the summer sale will end before I can get through even one queue.

Yep, coming from 24'' you want a 29''.  The 25'' is going to be wider, but shorter in terms of height and going to feel smaller than the 24''.

 

Is there a particular reason you were looking at the Lenovo?  The specs, you want to get it at best buy, etc.?

 

If you don't need something right away or don't mind dealing with refurb or used you can sometimes score a 29'' ultrawide for around the same price range (mine was a used-like new Amazon Warehouse Deals buy at $172).

That one is on clearance new for $226 but they might have an open-box fair for as low as $179 near you.  

 

I bought a monitor (Acer 24'') open box from Best Buy and I was happy with it.  Arrived in like new condition.  Was missing part of the power cord, but got a $15 credit from CSR to cover ordering it so in the end was happy.  It's always best if they have it near you so you can look at it and test it in store, but having the option to return to BB if you order online is also nice. 

 

Sorry for the late reply.  I saw the Lenovo in a Best Buy email and since I am in the market for a new monitor it caught my eye.  I wasn't really considering ultrawides because I thought they would be too big but the PS3 3D monitor I have is only a couple of inches shorter so I will definitely look at them again.  Unfortunately Best Buy is the only b&m "computer" store available in my area so I need to shop there or chance an online purchase.

If you're coming from a 24" regular a 25" might seem small.

 

I thought that might be the case.

Any thoughts on this monitor?  I am looking for something in this size range with an HDMI port as a replacement for an old and now defunct monitor.  I was hoping for built in speakers but that is not a deal breaker if this is a good buy.

Edit:  Does an ultra-wide make sense in this size?
